TSF : Solid-Fluid Transfer

The specificity of the Solid-Fluid Transfer group relies in its know-how in Heat transfer and Energetics. In the broad field of Heat transfer and Energetics, which is constantly revisited by new experimental techniques (e.g. optical velocimetry), new materials, or new challenges (e.g. micro- and nano-scales), the Solid-Fluid Transfer group explores four domains:

  1. Two-phase flows, dynamics and transfers,
  2. Oscillating flows, dynamics and transfers,
  3. Heat transfer in solid/superfluid and in micro-nano junctions
  4. Applied convective transfers and Solar energies


Another characteristic is that almost any member of the group is or was an experimentalist, or, if not, closely works with experimentalists. Globally speaking, our experimental skills are:

Considering numerical simulations, some of us develop numerical codes with advanced numerical techniques, most of us mainly use numerical codes and contribute partially to their development. Globally speaking, the numerical skills developed in the group are:
